Solved

I think my contributions are being deleted/removed

My memory of contributions is rather hazy, but I can recall having updated some anime shows/voice actors with miscellaneous sites (Anime News Planet, Anime Planet, My Anime List, Anime Screencaps, etc), and then coming back to them later and finding those sites removed. 

IMDb has freedom for users to do what they wish, and there is no rule that forbids changes to links, but this feels like nitpicking, at best, and at worst trolling. The frustration of having to put back those links again, and to possibly have to do this again in the future, is a terrible feeling. And I can't think of a solution for this problem either.

Hi sai_arun_muthusamy -

In order for our staff to investigate, can you post some links to the IMDb titles where you observed the removal of the External Site links?  Can you also clarify what valid links were removed?

@Michelle​  That's the thing, I can't be sure. I've been on IMDb for twenty years, made too many contributions. And as far as I know, there is no history page of contributions for each site to keep track of such things, at least no page that I can access.

I can be sure about a few sites though:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm7612988/ - Aoi Koga

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9522300/ - Kaguya-Sama: Love is War (2019)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14626352/ - Komi-San Can't Communicate (2021)

I had updated them with the sites mentioned above (Anime News Network, Anime-Planet, My Anime List), then about a week later I found they had been removed. I will put them again in the future.

@sai_arun_muthusamy​ Hi!

So sorry for our late response, we are working through our backlog.

Can I have the 18-digit submission reference to any of the External Site links you have submitted?

Cheers!

I'm sorry, I can't remember the references, and I don't keep them for a long time.

Let me just re-do my updates, and if there's any problem afterwards I'll send a message here.

Thank you for your resonse.
